So in a month or two here I will be buying a new bike. I am hoping to keep the bike in the 1000 dollar range (800-1200ish) I plan on using this bike on mostly paved surfaces, about 10 miles daily for exercise and some 25-50 mile rides on the weekends. Some of the longer rides will include riding on gravel, crushed limestone , and a dirt trail or two. Hoping to get my first century in this summer as well.
I think I have my choices narrowed down to two bikes and would appreciate any help with pros and cons and which would be the better choice. I think I like the more upright geometry of these two bikes. I am not a racer but would not mind going a little faster lol.
Trek Crossrip Comp
Specialized Secteur Sport Disc
Any help would be much appreciated, THANKS
